Emgality can help prevent migraine days before they start.

Emgality cut the number of monthly migraine days by 50% or more for some patients.

Much more than a headache, migraine is a real neurological disease that impacts over 30 million adults in the U.S.

Emgality is proud to announce our partnership with Team USA. Together, we support U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes and those who are impacted by migraine. Learn more about three Team USA athletes and how they’re bringing migraine to the forefront with Emgality.

Allysa Seely Paratriathalon and Emgality Patient

Allysa Seely, Paratriathlon

A gold medalist at the Paralympic Games Rio 2016, and three-time ITU Paratriathlon World Champion in 2015, 2016, and 2018, Allysa once experienced migraine days regularly. Her doctor prescribed Emgality and it has cut her monthly migraine days by more than half.

Allysa has overcome many obstacles in her life, while continuing to manage migraine. She has made taking Emgality part of her routine. With Emgality, it’s possible to help prevent migraine days before they start.

Allysa Seely lives with migraine and takes Emgality.

Ryan Murphy, Swimming

A three-time gold medalist at the Olympic Games Rio 2016 and world-record holder in the men’s 100-meter backstroke, Ryan has a long history of migraine, which runs in his family. Over years of training and competition, Ryan made an important connection: migraine strikes most often before high-stress events, such as swim competitions and U.S. Olympic Team Trials.

He understands the importance of planning ahead, which is something that many people living with migraine have also learned. Ryan refuses to let migraine keep his goals out of reach. He knows that treatment can be an important part of managing migraine. It’s possible to stay ahead of migraine days with a preventive treatment.

Ryan Murphy, who does not take Emgality but lives with migraine, is passionate about migraine prevention, which inspired his partnership with Emgality.

Kathleen Baker, Swimming

A two-time medalist at the Olympic Games Rio 2016 specializing in backstroke and individual medley events, Kathleen grew up with a mom who experiences debilitating migraine. While Kathleen herself doesn’t experience migraine, she witnesses the silent struggle her mom wages almost daily. Nevertheless, her mother pushes through migraine so that she can be there for Kathleen and cheer her on during events.

While Kathleen is the one who must meet the challenges of high-level competition, her mother’s support helps Kathleen achieve her goals. That's why Kathleen wants to be an advocate for those who experience migraine. She’s proud to have her mother in the stands, ready to witness her Olympic journey.

Kathleen Baker's mom Kimberly Baker, who does not take Emgality, inspired Kathleen's partnership with Emgality to advocate for those living with migraine.
